Ukraine's Healthcare Minister Maksym Stepanov

According to the forecasts of the Minister of Health Maksym Stepanov, in November-December, his ministry will increase the daily level of testing from Covid-19 up to 50,000 in one day. Stepanov stated this on the air of ICTV TV channel, Ukrinform reports.

"As for PCR tests - we want to go somewhere around 50,000 ... I think about mid-November, closer to December. In my opinion, as soon as we run tests for the antigen to Covid-19, we will level the situation because it is a practical analog of PCR, and we will significantly increase the number of tests," said Stepanov.

According to him, the number of tests depends on the availability of equipment and preparation of laboratory staff.
